Claude Julien, Bruins Pleased With Resilient Performance Despite Loss (Video)

Even though the Boston Bruins lost to the Colorado Avalanche 2-1 on Monday afternoon, they were content with the way they improved from their shutout loss to the Washington Capitals on Saturday.

Bruins' coach Julien keeps even keel

Claude Julien doesn't pay much attention to compliments or criticism. And he's had plenty of both. Just give him a pair of skates, players to teach and a spot behind the bench and the coach of the Boston Bruins is thrilled.

Boston Bruins Coach Claude Julien Had An Amazing Mustache As A Player

A.B. So many observations here, I don’t even know where to start. I’m literally blown away that this strapping young lad is the same person as this dude. First, Julien is only 53 years old?
